Subject: Yes, Best 'So Many Rds' Ever!!
Truth be told, as tears stream down my face at htis moment, that this rendition of 'so many roads' is what "it" is all about-in my opinion. If you listen, you will find sincerety and the haunting nature fo Jerry's huge personality sitting right next to you and you will say "why did you have to go?"....HUGE song and the licks on the guitar and PERFECT. Every sound every wift of note is precisely played and builds tremendously.
This show was very special for me as it signaled what I sensed would be "the end soon'. I just felt it. And 11 months later my fears were realized. This is an emotional song...bottom line.
Great sound quality. Crank it up!
Subject: Mediocre show and sound.
Subject: SO MANY ROADS!!!!
Subject: The end of the line
We had choice seats just six rows from the stage. It was our last time to sit in front of the Man and enjoy his music and getting high. Both 'So Many Roads' and 'The Days Between' kicked our asses.
"I knew something was different and that was Jerry's voice. It was so old and worn-out. Tired. He sounded like he was exhausted. I remember thinking to myself, he is dying."
This was even more obvious to us. We could also see his death in progress just a few feet away. All of those cigarettes were catching up with Jerry Garcia. And we never went back either.
Subject: I was there and I saw something amazing.
Subject: GOOD SHOW
Hilder/rebulider, your SMR thesis project must now end here. This is the definitive SMR.You have found the holy grail of SMR. Much like the caine/hackman theory ended with a bridge too far.
Subject: the "SMR" project
Subject: man o man
Subject: Another shout-out for the So Many Roads!
I've looked high and low for a version that kicks as much ass and takes as many names as this one.
The singing of the verses is pretty standard good - Jerry only stumbles once or twice. But things go off the charts with the ending (or what usually is the ending) vocal. Jerry really reaches deep, changes things up a bit "so many roads to fill my soul"... and then, blam! a HUGE guitar solo that just about lifts the tent off, and then _another_ vocal chorus to ease things down.
WHEW! check it out and the cuz it was so good and you enjoyed it again - check it out again.
If you know of a better - let me know...
btw - 7/9/95, 10/1/94, 5/21/95 are all nice, but this one is spectacular!
Subject: average show, average sound & more than worth a listen
Most of the rest is pretty average, except for the So Many Roads and post space, which are incredable.
The taper does a nice job, but the Naks cant compete with the Schoeps & DSDBs of this era.
Definately worth a download and listen.
Subject: So Many Roads...
What I wouldn't do for one more night with Jerry...
Subject: last show - nice day but ....
It was a beautiful, warm and sunny fall Sunday. I had a lawn pass and just wandered around Shoreline looking at all the people and listening to the music but by the time they got to jack_a_roe I knew something was different and that was Jerry's voice.
It was so old and worn-out. Tired. He sounded like he was exhausted. I remember thinking to myself, he is dying.
Not only that but the music was different too. Mechanical. Wooden. Just notes and beats, no real life left.
There were a few good songs: Tennessee Jed, Brown Eyed Women, Throwing Stones and especially Little Red Rooster. And the energy of the crowd was great too, one of the best in 1994, that is the reason for the 3 rating.
But nonetheless I walked away sad. I knew it was the end. That the best was in the past. And that I wasn't going back anymore ....
